Designed by Matthew Hilton in 2014, the Welles Table uses generous planes of solid natural wood against industrial-style cast iron legs for a contemporary, sculptural look.
The Welles Table’s top is detailed with a central divide and subtly angled edges, all balanced on slightly slanted cast iron legs that complement the wood’s grain. Its quietly practical structure is pleasingly functional yet distinctly modern, making a distinctive and dynamic addition to any space.
Crafted by De La Espada’s expert craftsmen in Portugal, the clean lines and timeless composition of Matthew Hilton’s four to six seater Welles Table are endlessly appealing. Faultlessly modern yet approachable, the Welles Table would make the perfect choice for everything from entertaining friends to everyday family suppers.
